Most venues have bubblers that's what I use usually...but if your dying from dehydration literally there's always a freshly flushed toilet .....maybe a sink would be better:silly:

What do you think would happen if everyone boycotted this run because of the inside job with ticket sales?
No money... they won't make that mistake twice...hit them where it hurts.. in the wallet


So you saying boycott this run. Then you should boycott the nye shows to. Im sure this all went down with those tickets too. That's just a bigger venue naturally more people will get into that show. I tought I saw were your husband got tickets trough ticketmaster. I could be wrong.

nope, you are correct, we got some through TM and some through GDTS.. and if it were my decision.. we wouldn't be going.. but this is something he has wanted for a long long time...I wanted to do a NYE run too but it wasn't that high on my list.. we just happen to be able to pull it off this time...but I said as soon as this april run was announced that we would not be giving Furthur any more money for a while... that I wanted to spend our money on doing something else other than putting the band's kids through college.

Can you imagine some pissed off people from this forum walking up to Phil and Joe hanging outside the show on NYE and being like fuck you greedy inside job bastards I've seen shows for twenty years or more and I can't get in to the beacon...its only gonna get worse people we just hit 7,000,000,000 people even fewer tickets and higher demand for the future!

I definitely agree, I was just trying to see if there is 1 seat for any of the Beacon shows through ticketmaster, no luck. But their are plenty here, www.ticketliquidator.com/tix/tickets.aspx?evtid=1794008 (all the way up to $943)
Unfortunately its no surprise, especially at a small place like the Beacon. But I really wish something could have been done to try and curb this problem. Its not like nobody saw it coming, 20 percent of the house and you know people will pay for it.

Wake up folks.

The band gives fans equal shot at some really good tickets...just less of them for the Big Shoes at popular venues on Sat night.

Everybody is well aware of the fact that everyone is in on this. These hot shows help underwrite the tour. The only thing bitching is going to do is bring back the VIP tickets a la Dead tour. So if you want to keep complaining, you will get even more of a chance when the first 10 rows go up to $150+ like the Allmans.

If you want a really good seat, target mid week.

If you want the band to come to your town on a weekend, work with a promoter and put up some of the guarantee.

Have people forgotten how impossible it was to get a good ticket from 86-95? How many times folks got rejected via mail order? If you want a really good ticket you will get one for Mon or Tuesday night near cost.

Shit the Stones were charging $150 for upstairs in an arena.
